On April 7, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life, a book written by Gene Bauer (the president of Farm Sanctuary) and Gene Stone (the author of Forks Over Knives), will be released. Living the Farm Sanctuary Life is a book about living an animal-friendly and vegan lifestyle.
According to their website (http://www.farmsanctuary.org/living/), "The book covers the basic tenets of Farm Sanctuary life –
such as connecting with nature wherever you are, reducing stress, and working to help the environment – and offers simple ways to incorporate these principles into your life." (By the way, it also includes vegan recipes, as well as stories about animals who have been rescued by Farm Sanctuary!)
I'm not trying to sell the book or anything, but if you want to buy it, you can pre-order it online (which would also enter you into a raffle, by the way). If you'd like to read it but would rather not buy it, it may be available at your local library. (For example, it is on order at the Ottawa Public Library.)
For those of you who didn't know, Farm Sanctuary is an organization in the United States that rescues farm animals, educates the public on the cruelty of factory farming, and advocates for a vegan lifestyle. They have three sanctuaries, one in New York and two in California, and they allow guests to come and visit, too. Someday I would love to visit one of their sanctuaries!
Just thought I'd let you know about the book, in case you want to check it out. :)
Let's remember to continue to speak out for the animals! They can't advocate for themselves, and many animals are in desperate conditions. Slowly, more and more people are becoming vegan, but we need to continue (or, for some people, start) to raise awareness about the issues in order to help as many animals as possible, as quickly as possible.
Have a great day!
